July 28—Witnesses rescued a 9-month-old boy who nearly drowned in a pool in Mililani on Monday.

According to an Emergency Medical Services report, witnesses pulled the boy from the water at about 3 p.m. and performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

The boy’s condition improved, and he was transported in serious condition to an area hospital.

Sheriff’s officers on leave

The Hawaii Department of Public Safety confirmed Monday that state Sheriff Robin Nagamine and First Deputy Patrick Lee have been placed on “unspecified leave.”

No reason was given, in accordance with the department’s policy on disciplinary actions. However, it is believed that the suspensions are related to the department’s handling of another sheriff deputy’s arrest for driving under the influence of an intoxicant two years ago.

Shawn Tsuha, deputy director for law enforcement, is filling in for Nagamine. Lee’s duties are being temporarily filled by Lt. Albert Cummings.

Marine training to be noisy

Communities around Schofield Barracks can expect a new round of artillery noise Tuesday and Wednesday with the Marines bringing in their big guns for training.

The Marines plan to conduct the exercises between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. each day, although training dates and times are subject to change based on environmental and other factors, the Army said.

Intermittent noise may be heard in surrounding communities but does not indicate danger, the Army said. Weather, such as overcast conditions, can increase noise and vibrations.

“The military services in Hawaii appreciate the community’s understanding and continued support of local service members and families,” the Army said. “While sometimes loud, the sounds of training represent how the military ensures the nation’s service members are ready to accomplish the mission and return home safely.”

Dolphin Quest asks to move young animals

Three young dolphins will take to the air if the state approves a transport request from Dolphin Quest Inc., West Hawaii Today reported Monday.

The company is making the transfer as part of its 25-year-old breeding program, Vice President of Animals Michelle Campbell said. Dolphin Quest allows tourists to swim with dolphins in lagoons at resorts.

Dolphin Quest wants to send two Atlantic bottlenose dolphins from the Hilton Waikoloa Village to the Kahala Hotel & Resort Oahu. A third animal, the offspring of two dolphins imported in 1988, would make the opposite journey.

“Exchanging males with our sister facility on the Big Island keeps our animal population stable and well represented from a genetic standpoint,” said Campbell.

The intrastate transfer requires approval from the Board of Agriculture, which is scheduled to consider the request next week.
